In the world of cutting-edge consumer electronics, audio user interfaces reign supreme. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we welcome Yipeng Liu from Cadence Design Systems. Yipeng and I discuss how the complexity of mobile codex sample rates is changing the consumer electronic design landscape, why automotive designs present a unique set of audio design challenges, and what lies ahead for the future of audio user interfaces. Keeping with our hi-fi theme, we also check out the details of the world’s first personalized hi-fi wireless earbuds.
In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the role of continuing education in our fast-paced electronic engineering ecosystem. Mike Gianfangna (eSilicon) joins us to discuss how both mentorship and formal education can help address the biggest challenges of chip design and why Mike feels that we should treat electronic design startups like wineries.
This week’s episode of Fish Fry runs the gamut of electronic design. First, check out how an Italian engineering student built a 3D printer for only twelve dollars! (Spoiler alert: He used recycled parts from three inkjet printers and a flatbed scanner). Next, Breker CEO Adnan Hamid joins us to discuss the controversy around portable stimulus representation models, the future of portable stimulus, and why he thinks we’re just scratching the surface of what portable stimulus can be. Closing out this week’s podcast episode, I take a closer look at

It’s time to break out your barbells, chalk powder and protein shakes, because we’re going to be doing some serious heavy lifting in this week’s episode of Fish Fry. Instead of letting our biceps and triceps do all the work, how about we pull in some heavy-duty hardware to help us out? First up, we bring in Lisa Minwell from eSilicon who joins us to chat about the high-performance computing demands we need to consider when designing for the Cloud and the details of eSilicon’s 14LPP IP Platform. Next, we’ve got Steve Mensor from … Read More → "Heavy Lifting Hardware"
It’s coming. He knows it is. It’s only a matter of time before it buries him. His story is not unique. It’s been played out in our industry over and over again. He’s suffering from BUAMODS – or – Buried Under A Mountain Of Data Syndrome. But what’s the cure for this ailment? How do we dig ourselves out from underneath this mountain of analytics? In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we strike at the very heart of this issue. Dr David Fried (CTO – Coventor) joins us to discuss how big analytics are changing … Read More → "Scaling the Analytic Mountains"
